. people are tuning in and finding these conversations very helpful. >> let me turn to carol ann? -- caroyln. >> a question for miss brown. >> thank you for taking the time today. during the second presidential debate, candy crowley interrupted mitt romney. was the moderator following policy? >> the number of moving parts in a town meeting is substantial. you have almost 80 uncommitted voters, citizens chosen to ask questions. the candidates and the moderator is trying to direct something. our plan for town meeting has been the same for other formats. hopefully the moderator can keep things moving with the focus on the candidates. it is asking a lot of the moderator. there are independent and professional journalists will do what they think is necessary to try to keep things moving. we are proud of the job that she did and i don't think she meant in any way to be disrespectful or try to interrupt the flow of the conversation. a town meeting is challenging because of the variables on one very small stage. >> over the years that you have been working in the presidential debates, ha

much. i want to ask carol goldberg to stand up, because she gets to a question that both these men have been passionate about. it's for governor romney. >> the outsourcing of american jobs overseas has taken a toll on our economy. what plans do you have to put back and keep jobs here in the united states? romney: boy, great question and important question, because you're absolutely right. the place where we've seen manufacturing go has been china. china is now the largest manufacturer in the world. it used to be the united states of america. a lot of good people have lost jobs. a half a million manufacturing jobs have been lost in the last four years. that's total over the last four years. one of the reasons for that is that people think it's more attractive in some cases to go offshore than to stay here. we have made it less attractive for enterprises to stay here than to go offshore from time to time. what i will do as president is make sure it's more attractive to come to america again. this is the way we're going to create jobs in this country. it's not by trickle-down governme

perot, and governor bill clinton, the democratic nominee. my name is carole simpson and i will be the moderator for tonight's 90 minutes' debate coming to you from the campus of the university of richmond in virginia. tonight's program is unlike any other presidential debate in history. we're making history now and it's pretty exciting. an independent polling firm has selected an audience of 209 uncommitted voters from this area. the candidates will be asked questions by these voters on a topic of their choosing -- anything they want to ask about. my job as moderator is to, you know, take care of the questioning, ask questions myself if i think there needs to be continuity and balance, and sometimes i might ask the candidates to respond to what another candidate may have said. now the format has been agreed to by representatives of both the republican and democratic campaigns. and there is no subject matter that is restricted. anything goes. we can ask anything. after the debate, the candidates will have an opportunity to make a closing statement. so, president bush, i think you said

, carole. >> thank you. mr. perot. >> well, it's cost-effective to help russia succeed in its revolution; it's pennies on the dollar compared to going back to the cold war. russia is still very unstable; they could go back to square one, and worse. all the nuclear weapons are not dismantled. i am particularly concerned about the intercontinental weapons, the ones that can hit us. we've got agreements, but they are still there. with all this instability and breaking into republics, and all the middle eastern countries going over there and shopping for weapons, we've got our work cut out for us. so we need to stay right on top of that and constructively help them move toward democracy and capitalism. we have to have money to do that. we have to have our people at work. see, for 45 years we were preoccupied with the red army. i suggest now that our number one preoccupation is red ink and our country and we've got to put our people back to work so that we can afford to do these things we want to do in russia. we cannot be the policeman for the world any longer. we spent $300 billi

. me turn to bob -- let me turn to bob and carol and with their reaction. >> i think president bush in that clip came very close to crossing the threshold that this particular voter, the questioner, was tried to get out, and that was the human connection. what was he feeling? and people made a lot of jokes about bill clinton being able to geneothers' pain, at the that he has close to his heart. president bush was already by this point painted as somebody who was disconnected. you will recall the front page of the "the new york times" and he did not know what a scanner was on a grocery store. of course he did. president bush was simply a nice person on the campaign trail in new hampshire, trying to make conversation with a store clerk. that story took root, and is painted a version of him that was so unflattering to everyday people, made him look privileged and above the fray, above the pain, and that left a huge opening for bill clinton in 1992. >> and bob? >> bill clinton had a better response, much more personal on the human level or spots. if i were bill clinton, i would invite y

battleground states of iowa. carolas on the -- carol is on the democratic line. caller: i want to ask the gentleman what was his response when the man came out talking about the rape issue and our people in iowa taking that in, whether they even big about the fact that their daughters could be put in harm's way with somebody making a broad statement like that? guest: well, i think voters in the state take those kind of issues very seriously. i think that any comment about that will have an effect on the campaign. this is a state where something like 80% of iowa residents are regular turn to attendees. about 80% of the state is injured somewhere or other on sunday mornings. so these type of issues tend to resonate with them. they have different views about them, but they care about them. so those issues have a lot of impact in iowa. i think that iowa voters tend to react on a gut level to those type of issues, but they do react. int: let's hear from marked des moines on our independent line. -- from marc. caller: i've been watching the election closely and i would like to hear the politici
